Sampler of six and an excellent menu that is a tad overpriced for what you get. Upstairs is a billiards room with a full bar and several other games. Great place to hang out and sample beer.

I liked this place the first time I went in 1997, but the second time it wasn’t nearly as good, and fell to the bottom of my C-Springs stopping list. Sub-par beers, but a good location.

Located in downtown Colorado Springs street parking was hard to score close to building and I refuse to pay $6 for parking to hang out in a place as lame as Colorado Springs. The downstairs area was closing but they have a large pool hall upstairs full of people who apparently couldn’t tell the difference between chicken salad and chicken shit. The hefe I had was shockingly bad and I thought it would be a waste a time to sample more if they could fuck up such a pure and innocent style so badly. Did I mention it was incredibly loud and most of the patrons spoke in series of shrieks and grunts? Probably a minor detail.

Phantom Canyon is a really cool brewpub in downtown. I wasn’t expecting much from the quality of beers just because they’ve been around for a long time, have a killer location, and seem to focus heavily on the food and pool hall. I was pleasantly surprised. There was a great selection spanning interesting styles and while there were definitely a few misses for me, there were a couple beers I thought were excellent. The smoked porter and double IPA were my favorites. Happy hour is a great value, and prices are pretty standard outside of that. I ate the beef/bacon sliders and helped finish off the fried chicken plate. The food is above average, I would say. Service was excellent at the bar. Upstairs is a pool hall with another bar and a killer rooftop patio.

Stopped in for a couple of pints on a Saturday evening - Memorial day weekend 2009. Nice layout to the bar, tables and big bar on the ground floor, billiards and other fun on the second floor. Reminded me a lot of Wynkoop in Denver, in turns out this is a Hickenlooper joint as well. They had about 6-7 beers on tap, with two casks featured. I had the IPA (on cask) and Amber, and both were above average. Sat at the bar, and had good service from the bartender, who was also quite friendly. Only food we had was the calamari appetizer, and it was fine. Good scene, nice place to have a pint.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

This was your typical brew pub that was way too corporate. This was located in the middle of Colorado Springs trying to be an upscale resultant while brewing/selling beer. Liked the beer but the food was way over priced. The service was Ok the food good but high priced and the beer was also average. The service was good but not over the top. Stop by if you have the time and try it out. Great names on the beers though.

Pretty bland beers with incredibly small and pathetic tasters. These tasters are 1oz and impossible to get an aroma off of them due to their cylinderical shape. Cool atmosphere and good food but the beers were not very exciting.

A nice brewpub in downtown Colorado Springs. It was quite packed on the Sunday afternoon that we visited, although most patrons were getting lunch and not beers. They had a number of taps on (10 I believe) with 2 of those casks. Most were on the mediocre side, with a couple good and a couple not-so-good. Split the artichoke dip with beer-battered bread - super tasty - and a cheese soup which was super cheesy and creamy. Good food overall. It was a nice place, nice atmosphere (perhaps a little strange that people weren’t drinking beer), with ok beer.

Good sized brewpub in downtown Colorado Springs. 11 beers on tap that were pretty much average but a nice variety. Had the fried chicken which was just a fried boneless chicken breast but was tasty. Service was great. Not a true beer geeks brewpub, but worth a stop.

A landmark in the Springs. Happy to return recently to notice little change in 6 years. They’ve even stepped up their beer game! Multiple levels of beer, pool, and pub fare. A great place for groups, too.
